Google Shopper iPhone App Gets Map-Based Offers

Google just released an update to version 1.5 for their Google Shopper iPhone app, which now integrates Google Offers. The app makes it easy to find more information on the products in front of you while you shop. It recognizes cover art, barcodes, and supports voice and text search to bring you relevant local versus online pricing, reviews, videos, and other specs. And now, it will also let you find deals nearby while you're on the go.

The new Google Shopper adds two new tabs at the bottom of the screen called Offers and My Offers. The Offers tab shows a list or map view of all the nearby businesses that have submitted deals via Google Places. If you come across a deal that you like but don't plan on using just yet, you can save it for later. After it's been saved, to view it, you simply go to the My Offers tab.

You can also view and redeem your purchased offers from the My Offers tab. However, currently this is available only in select cities, which include Portland, Oregon, the San Francisco Bay Area, and New York. The Google Shopper 1.5 update is available to iPhone users in the US as well as the UK and is compatible with iOS 4.0 and above.
